You should absolutely try this. Its such a novel idea. Just imagine the duck-walking you could do when you have a truncated-tetrahedron, zorb-cushioned, isocyanate sheathed, geothermal-powered chill space to roll around the playa! Why, the sparklepony-pants would just fall off all by themselves in eager anticipation of your pelvic thrusts.

Bring it! Yes, Yes!!! Please do! We beg you! You simply MUST!

And for maximum points it should be powered by Peltier devices utilizing vector-additve quantum foam to photonically charge-pump electrons into virtual holes in a bismuth/silicon dioxide matrix. Hey! With a couole of extra kilowatts, you could also bring a "singing flame" electrostatic speaker system and show Robot Heart how its properly done!

(Or you could actually show-up, bring the basics, dump your expectations and go with the flow your first year... Naw) :mrgreen:

If we stop arguing with an idiot, the idiot will have nothing to argue about. Almost seems like "he who shall not be named" returning would be an improvement. Someone brought this troll over here from reddit.

Do not make it clear in Page Two who you're talking about. The idea is that it's not obvious, otherwise this is a giant attack thread that's basically shredding the ToS. Like I said a little while ago, we're all smart cookies - show clever snark and intentional vagueness here.

The quotes should be around the word "policy", not nice. There is no policy - it was a suggestion from members of the ePlaya (which I honestly don't have a problem with), but it is not in any way a capital P "Policy". As long as people are posting within the rules of the board (ToS and Community Guidelines, see the bottom of every page), we're not going to tell you what to say.

Me either!!! And I am very careful, if I post a negative remark here, to make sure the object of my ire remains unidentified. Which in my last attempt has apparently worked :wink: sorry mgb!

Decisions, decisions, do I stay home because of the added expense or try to get by on just five bags?

Frankly, I'm not so sure that is that or someone just looking at the cell phone (although not necessarily mutually exclusive).

The worst kind of Burners are the ones who seemingly enjoy nothing about the event, except for complaining endlessly about the event.

Give your ticket to an enthusiastic virgin who will actually fucking enjoy themselves rather than bitching about every single thing you don't agree with. The event is better without your jaded ass.

And when was the last time I saw any of these jaded shits actually doing something to make the event better? Ah, right, never. They sit in camp and bitch about everyone under the age of 30 who happens to enjoy the event.

When YOU complain about complainers, what exactly does that make you?
